Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: From Ransom Riggs visionary mind to Tim Burton's adaptation

20th Century Fox has released a slew of new images for Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children which I've nabbed in case you missed them elsewhere.

Based on the wonderfully weird childrens' book by Ransom Riggs, Tim Burton's movie promises to be as wonderfully quirky. One of my earliest posts on the book to movie, back in November of 2011 was Ransom Riggs pronouncement that Tim Burton was his choice for director. In the Deadline review I quoted at the time, Riggs was asked who he had in mind for Miss Peregrine. His answer? Tilda Swinton. Because she was "sort of elegant and birdlike."

Here's the official rundown
"When Jacob discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers."

The movie stars Eva Green as Miss Peregrine with Asa Butterfield as Jacob. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench,Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, and Rupert Everett.  After five long years in the making, Miss Peregrine arrives September 30th.
